LeBron and the Lakers.

How did LeBron’s Lakers debut go, you ask? Just let ESPN tell it:

“It was the best and worst of what the Lakers can be as expected,” they write. “We wondered if the Lakers have enough shooting, and they missed their first 15 3-point attempts. We wondered if the Lakers have enough size inside, and they were outrebounded 54-46 while getting outscored 21-10 off second chance points. But the Lakers can clearly run, outscoring Portland 34-12 in fastbreak points. And LeBron James and Rajon Rondo are the undisputed leaders.”

Here’s What Young Folks Really Want from Casual Sex.

Sure, “casual” sounds nice. But is that REALLY what you want, or are you just protecting yourself from catching feelings? According a new study published in the Journal of Relationships Research, both men and women want more their one-night stands than they may let on.

For this study, an online survey of 638 college students aged 25 and younger was conducted, and participants were asked to choose the most favorable intimate acts of the following: cuddling, foreplay, gazing into each other’s eyes, and sleeping together after sex while embracing.

“Perhaps not surprisingly, most people (nine in ten) wanted to engage in all four of these affectionate behaviors with a romantic partner,” TONIC reports. “When it came to casual sex, the numbers were more variable, but most people still wanted to engage in at least some of these activities: 79 percent wanted foreplay, 58 percent wanted cuddling, 42 percent wanted to spend the night, and 27 percent wanted eye gazing. This pattern suggests that the more intimate a given behavior is, the less likely people are to want it with a casual partner.”
